I had an issue with the nut wanting to strip out the plastic since you will be tightening it down at an angle. I started with 2mm then dropped it to 1mm. Even with 1mm the angle of the wing is noticably steeper

Anyone else have problems with the front wanting to rise up off bigger jumps? One jump in particular at my track. Its a step on step off style jump which can be made into a quad. The buggy has plenty of power with a 5.5t motor in it to clear it but the nose likes to raise up off the jump making the landing really rough and obviously harder to control in the air, Brake tapping doesnt seem to help much, once its up, its up. Running 42.5 shock oil in the front and 35wt in the rear. Not entirely sure on what pistons Im running right now. Just looking for suggestions on what would be causing it to do it?

Are people using the aluminium ballstud washers as limiters inside the shocks? Or are plastic ones being used? If so, which ones? Also, on the first page, Torrance mentions "I do the poor-man method... I use the stock o-rings but replace the spacer between them with a 1.5mm ballstud washer instead (the standard spacer is 2mm). Smoothens the shock action without leaks." Is he referring to using the aluminium ballstud washers? It doesn't sound right to me to use aluminium washers inside the shocks because they may scratch/damage the shock shaft and/or shock bore. Or is there nothing to worry about and they can be used just fine?

Plastic for both of your questions.

What wing? Only time I had nose up problems was with a different wing on it... went back to the stock one (low position), no more problems.

My shocks build up rebound after only one battery of driving. I know emulsion style aren't as consistent as bladder but still. I'm tired of letting air out every 30 minutes. I asked this earlier in the thread, but is there no way i can make the Kyosho shocks fit even though they arent as long as the HB ? Good ideas anyone ?
